Who Better To Play My Wifey Than My Wifey: Ranveer Singh On Deepika Padukone Joining '83

Who Better To Play My Wifey Than My Wifey: Ranveer Singh On Deepika Padukone Joining '83

Ranveer Singh has been in the industry for nearly a decade now, with 12 movies listed in his biography. That brings his average to slightly more than one movie in a year. True, he doesn't do a lot of films back-to-back but when he does, he makes sure his exemplary performance bags him all the awards and critics' appreciation. Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani are proof of it. Soon, we'll be able to say the same for his latest release Gully Boy.

Currently, Ranveer is taking his time to prep for his upcoming film '83, which is a biopic on our former Indian Cricket Captain, Kapil Dev. The news of Ranveer playing Kapil Dev first came out two years ago. There were rumours that Deepika Padukone will play his wife in the movie, especially after the two tied the knot in November last year. Now for real, his wifey is all set to play the part!

Deepika has joined the cast of '83 and is all set to play Kapil Dev's wife, Romi Dev, in the film. Ranveer just announced her entry with Instagram posts and it's pretty clear he can't keep calm anymore. Here, have a look:

In fact, Deepika also posted these pictures on her Instagram saying how incredibly honoured she is to be a part of the film. To this, Ranveer jokingly commented:


Haha! That's so true, though!

Ranveer also posted a funny boomerang of the two giving us a glimpse of their everyday life.
